Jeff KingWestfield, MA, United States
We like Cayetano so much, we eagerly booked a second tour with him when we revisited Barcelona! He is fun, friendly, professional, and personal. In the past, Cayetano has provided tours for some very famous people. But, without a doubt, we felt like he gave us the V.I.P. treatment. I am sure he will do the same for you and you will not be disappointed! I highly recommend that you book Cayetano right away - you'll be happy you did.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jeff, Kathy and Jordan, it was a pleasure to meet you again in Barcelona. I hope to meet you again in Barcelona or maybe in the US. Best Regards form Barcelona!! Cayetano
WOW - What an adventure and a beautiful city (Barcelona) We are so happy that we booked with Tours by Locals and our guide Cayetano. I can't imagine having tour with anyone else. We enjoyed it so much -we will be back and hopefully another tour with Cayetano
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Karen, It was a pleasure to meet you in Barcelona. I hope to meet you and your party again in Barcelona soon! Yours Sincerely, Cayetano

Cayetano is a fabulous tour guide and a wonderful person! We are very pleased and proud to have the opportunity to become acquainted with him in our travels. His knowledge, love, and passion for Barcelona is evident in every moment you spend with him! He is very professional, kind and courteous, and seeks to ensure you receive the results you desire in your tour. We travel the world extensively and Cayetano is among the upper echelon of tour guides in our experience! I would give him 10 stars! Bravo!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Peter and Christy, It was a pleasure to meet you in Barcelona and to show you my beautiful city. As you could see, this week Barcelona is experiencing some political unrest with demonstrations around the city. I am sorry We couldn´t go to Girona on Thursday but We managed to find an alternative tour and We could see a lot during the two days We were together. Enjoy the rest of your trip. I hope to meet you again in Barcelona very soon! Yours Sincerely, Cayetano
Cayetano is a very knowledgeable guide. He provided me with relevant and interesting facts. Cayetano has a very pleasant personality, serious yet caring, professional yet easy going. I tremendously enjoyed my full-day private tour with him, time flew by. We met as strangers, but parted as friends.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lili, It was a pleasure to spend the day with you in Barcelona. I hope you enjoyed your time in Paris. I hope to meet you again in the future. Yours Sincerely, Cayetano
Nilsa P.United States
Cayetano is profesional, extremely knowledgeable and very friendly, we had one of the best tours ever. Will come back when the sagrada familia is finished and hopefully use him again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nilsa and Roberto, it was a pleasure to spend the day with you. Enjoy the rest of your stay in Barcelona. Yours Sincerely, Cayetano
Joanne NilandUnited States
I feel we got a really good understanding of the life and works of Gaudi with this tour. Casa Battlio and Casa Milà are two amazing buildings. Park Güell is unbelievable and then we finished at the Sagrada Familia. We learned so much more about Gaudio's creations from our guide than we would have on our own listening to an audiotape or just reading about them. Cayetano was always receptive to our questions.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joanne and Mark, I am happy to read you enjoyed the Gaudi tour. See you again in 2016 in Barcelona! Cayetano
Terri LanghansUnited States
Our 4-hour tour of the four major Gaudi sites was educational, entertaining and just the right amount of time. Tano speaks impeccable English, and as we walked from one site to another, he told us about life in and out of Barcelona, as well. There wasn't a question he couldn't answer, and few we had to ask because of his wealth of knowledge. Highly recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Terry, Thanks for your review. I hope to see you soon in Barcelona or in OC. Yours Sincerely, Cayetano
Cindi CurroUnited States
When my wife and I return to Barcelona, booking a tour with Cayetano V is a given. He was fantastic.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cindi and Sam, Thanks again for your review! I hope to see you in Barcelona soon. Cayetana
Mary McArthurLONDON, LONDON, United Kingdom
Our second tour with Cayatano, on consecutive days. Again, a real pleasure. We have no hesitation in recommending Cayatano to any other traveller's looking for a very informative guide with excellent English.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mary, Thanks again! Looking forward to meeting you again in Barcelona! Cayetano
Chris HolcombeUnited States
Cayetano is a fantastic guide and host in his hometown of Barcelona. This was the second of 2 half day tours with him and both exceeded expectations. His depth of knowledge, excellent English, and ability to interact with all of our family of 6, including 4 kids 18 and under was most appreciated. I encourage you to engage Cayetano if you are lucky enough to find him available.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Holcombre Family, Thanks for the review! I hope to meet your family again in Barcelona!! Yours Sincerely, Cayetano
Joe FortsonUnited States
Tour was extremely well-done. Would use Cayetano again. He is superior in his field. English is good.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joe, Thanks for the review! I hope to see you again in Barcelona. Cayetano
Kevin NicholsonUnited States
Cayetano was outstanding. We would rate him a 5 out of 5. He was pleasant, prompt, and knowledgeable. Not only was he great with our your, he helped us with finding a fantastic place for lunch afterwards. We would definitely recommend using Tano if you are in Barcelona.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nicholson family, I am happy to read you enjoyed the tour and the lunch at "Ciutat Comtal". I hope to meet you again in Barcelona. Yours Sincerely, Cayetano

Donna RuckerUnited States
6 of us spent two days on two different tours with "Tano" and we could not have enjoyed it more. He was knowledgeable, experienced, and a pleasure to be around. I would highly recommend him to anyone visiting Barcelona.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Donna, Thanks for your review. Enjoy the rest of your stay in Barcelona! Yours Sincerely, Cayetano
We enjoyed you tour of the Gaudi sites immensely .He certainly was a genius.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Rhonda!!!
Paul B.United States
Cayetano gave us a wonderful experience. We learned a lot about not only Gaudi, but Barcelona and the culture. Cayetano is very knowledgeable and engaging, too. He got our teenage kids into it and they also thought the tour was great. I highly recommend Cayetano and his Gaudi tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paul, I am happy to read that you enjoyed the tour. Enjoy your trip in Spain! Regards from Brussels Cayetano
Catherine ScavoUnited States
How fortunate were we to have Cayetano, as our personal guide, these past two days in magical, historical Barcelona. I was fortunate to find ToursByLocals in Rick Steves' suggestion for booking local certified guides. We wish we could award Cayetano 10 stars! He was personable, on time, engaging and thoughtful...a consummate professional. His depth and love of his city was evident at every corner we happily followed him to while on our tours. We recommend Cayetano without reservation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Catherine, Thanks for your message I enjoyed spending 2 half days in Barcelona with you and Tony. I hope to see you again in Barcelona. Cayetano
Steven HagedornUnited States
Cayetano was excellent, friendly, kind (can't believe how many people on the street he helped in many small ways). Knowledgeable about history of Barcelona and Catalonia in addition to depth of knowledge about Gaudí and 19th/20th C. art history. Very enjoyable tour. You would be missing something great if you don't book with Cayetano on his Gaudí tour. Cayetano - we are in Cadaques living the rosado life. Margaret -review meant especially for you. Steve
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Steve and Margaret, Thanks for your review, I enjoyed spending the morning with you in Barcelona. I am happy to read you are enjoying your stay in Cadaques and the south of France. I hope to see you again in Barcelona soon. Yours Sincerely, Cayetano
Patti VarholUnited States
We were pleased to find Cayetano available to give us a tour after all the terrific reviews. His knowledge about Gaudi is vast and we could tell he really loved the subject. That in itself was worth a 5 star review. So why the 4 Stars? We felt he did not listen and understand what we were looking for in our tour. He was not flexible with some suggested changes to the tour, for example, we were not interested in visiting Park Guell, but he was certain we needed to see it. Wish he had listened.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Patti, Thanks for your review. Based on my 24 years of experience, Park Guell and Sagrada Familia are the two sites you want to visit with a licensed tour guide, they sell out very fast and you can miss a lot of information if you visit these two site alone, without a tour guide. In the messages We exchanged before the tour, informed to me you wanted to visit PG alone another day. I just recommended to invest the time with me visiting PG and SF. I am sorry If I didn´t exceed the expectations.
Carole M.United States
Cayetano was the most amazing guide. He had a full and comprehensive knowledge of Gaudi sites in Barcelona as well as an architectural background which made the city buildings especially interesting. I would highly recommend his tour. Specifically he made the Sagrada Familia come alive and we captured some terrific photos. Park Guell is also a magical place when experienced with such a well spoken guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Carole, thanks for your review. I am happy to read that you enjoyed the tour. I hope to see you again in Barcelona soon. Yours Sincerely, Cayetano
Our second day with Cayetano was just as great as the first. You made Gaudi's work come alive and gave us a true understanding of his genius. Thanks for two most amazing days in Barcelona : the best ever !'
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Janet, Thanks for the reviews! See you in Barcelona in 2026. Yours Sincerely, Cayetano
Bethanie MorelandUnited States
Cayetano gave us the perfect tour! He showed us the most popular Gaudi sites in Barcelona during our limited time. The tour was organized well and he kept everything running on time. He has deep knowledge of the history of Barcelona, as well as the history of Gaudi's creations, and he was able to share the information in an easy-to-understand manner. His love of his city and his passion for the Gaudi structures were both very obvious. I highly recommend him and his tours!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bethanie, thanks for the review. I hope to see you again in Barcelona and flying with you!! Yours Sincerely, Cayetano
Diane MorehouseUnited States
What a wonderful tour, we did a customized tour with Cayetano, I learned more on this tour than on any other I have done and truly enjoyed the day. Highly recommend Cayetano, just a great person overall, highly intelligent, knowledgeable, articulate, and what pride he has in this city of Barcelona, it shows in his enthusiasm! We have been long time members of tours by locals, this was one of our favorites, don't miss the opportunity to tour with Cayetano!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Diane and Karen, I am happy to read that you enjoyed the tour. I hope to see meet you again in Barcelona very soon. Greetings from Barcelona. Cayetano
John BullardUnited States
Cayetano gave us a Gaudi tour today. He was FANTASTIC! He was so friendly. He knew so much about Gaudi that Gaudi came alive before our eyes, until the final chapter when at the end of the tour, Gaudi died and was buried beneath our feet in the crypt in the Cathedral. Cayetano structured the tour perfectly like a good story with a beginning a middle and a climactic end. One of the reasons we booked the Viking tour was to see Barcelona and we really wanted to learn about Gaudi.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John, It was a pleasure to spend the morning with you visiting the most interesting buildings built by Gaudi. Enjoy the rest of your stay in Barcelona and the cruise. See you again in Barcelona in 2026! Cayetano
Kimberly MacleodUnited States
Tano is knowledgable, an excellent communicator, and the tour was flawlessly planned. His English and the pace of the tour were both perfect for our very intercultural group of 5. Skipping the line and his relationships and knowhow saved a lot of time. Value for time spent and what we covered in 4 hours was also 5-star. Extra tips for post tour things to do and places to eat were also most helpful. A true pro. Thanks for a fabulous, culturally rich beginning to our week here in Barcelona!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kimberly, thanks for the review. I enjoyed spending the morning with you and your party in Barcelona and I am happy to read you liked the tour. Enjoy the rest of your stay in Barcelona. Yours Sincerely, Cayetano
Michael M.United States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michael, it was a pleasure to meet you last Thursday in Barcelona. I hope to see you again in Barcelona. Yours Sincerely, Cayetano
Robert ChirlinUnited States
An excellent and thorough tour of Gaudi in Barcelona by Cayetano. He was very knowledgeable and able to transfer his enthusiasm to us. This is a tour you need to take in Barcelona and Cayetano would be an excellent choice as your guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robert, thanks for the review! Se you again in Barcelona. Tano
